The company announced today the opening of its new NIO House located in Yueqing Bay, Zhejiang Province in eastern China. The Chinese EV maker has currently 44 Nio Houses across the globe and opened its first European one in September 2021 located in Oslo (Norway) — the country with the highest EV penetration.
“Express the space in an artistic way, integrate the city, environment and nature into the design, perfectly combine the overall style with the surrounding environment and the city, and create a living space full of emotional artistic conception.” — Nio added.
“The concise bar integrates the elements of coffee, wine and NIO Life, making the whole space immediately active and showing a literary style full of emotion. Functionally, the bar is specially set at the corner, so that all NIO users can taste the delicious food prepared here, get satisfaction, happiness and comfort. The overall open space layout not only increases the mobility of the space, but also improves the interaction between users and scenes, realizing the dual enjoyment of vision and taste.”
Nio have been adding NIO Houses always enhancing that they are much more than a showroom for its products. According to Nio, these facilities include a Gallery (to get to know NIO and its products), a Living Room (to relax and meet like-minded people), a Lab (to boost productivity in bookable meeting rooms and shared workspace), a Library (to indulge yourself in knowledge or relaxation), Forums (to spark ideas and inspiration), a “NIO Café” (to savor the signature coffe by Nio’s finest barista), and a Joy Camp (for kids to explore, create and grow).
Last week, NDS (Navigation Data Standard) Association announced the Chinese EV maker Nio as their new member. Martin Schleicher, NDS Chairman, describes Nio as a “strong Asian partner” that has a “future vision”. NDS offers a well-defined spec for how to store map data and it allows flexibility for customized user experiences. Its maps work worldwide and are globally adopted.
“Navigation technology and globally reliable data standards are another field that NIO can advance with its vision and development strength. Therefore, the NDS membership is a great enrichment for the future of this global association of innovation-focused companies and their common goals.” — NDS stated.
Recently, Nio posted 8 new job vacancies in London (England) suggesting that it can be its next European Market after the already announced Sweden, Denmark, Germany and The Netherlands. Nio started selling its ES8 Model in late 2021, in Norway (the country with the highest EV penetration) and is now intensifying its move to the United Kingdom. Nio has currently 11 vacancies for England, eight of them posted during the last 24h on LinkedIn.
